The Core Of Monkos was founded in 1996.  In the beginning only mouths and vocal chords were used (See the 'Monkcore Minutes' section).  Later we started using our entire bodies which are now on display in the 'Films' section.

There was obviously some raw talent but we hadn't learnt how to harness it yet. You will find some examples below. Head over to the "Imagine Happiness" page for the first major project undertaken by the Core in 2003/2004. Unfortunately we were still stuck with our old equipment so no widescreen.


In the early days the Core played a game called AQ2 (Action Quake 2) and created a clan called MnK. They amused the community with their unconventional humorous behaviour.
